An Introduction to...Everyday Emotional Health Sessions

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

If you have done any research into hypnotherapy, you may have found therapists or websites showing a long list of conditions that hypnosis can treat. Everything from alcoholism and weight-loss, to blushing and smoking cessation. Click here for more.

It may initially seem absurd that a talking therapy like hypnosis can treat so many different conditions, but if you boil it down to the basics, it really does make sense. Essentially, hypnosis is used to change an automatic reaction to a particular stimulus, such as an object, situation, time, place, person, animal etc (think Pavlov and dogs). It is anything that triggers a subconscious response that you cannot consciously, logically change. Hypnosis can update the pattern match or conditioning to produce a new automatic response.

When I relaunched my website and started seeing clients from my new room in Sale, I decided to condense the number of conditions that I can help with. I wanted to focus on the issues that mean the most to me, those that I have personally lived through and have had the greatest successes with my previous clients. I also think there is something quite meaningful about having walked in the shoes of a condition which has given me a deeper understanding.

With this in mind, I developed a new type of session called Everyday Emotional Health. These sessions provide help for:

  • Anxiety & Stress
  • Sleep
  • Phobias
  • Confidence & Self-esteem.

As you can see, these are the emotional conditions which many, if not all of us, will experience at some point in our lives. Another reason why these issues are all included under this umbrella term is becuase I have found that it is not unusual for one condition to cross over into others. For example, very often somebody dealing with sleeping problems (insomnia) will also be experiencing anxiety or stress. In fact, sometimes helping with anxiety first can lead to improved sleep, meaning there isn't a need to treat the sleeping problem head-on.

This is something I will talk about in more detail in another blog post, but one of the most important aspects of my therapy is that I treat each client holistically, looking at the bigger picture rather focusing on just one particular element.

Finally, if you are looking for help with an issue which is not included in an Everyday Emotional Health session, please get in touch with me before booking.
